Hi everyone,

 

I need some clarification, as to be honest the Samsung support staff are hopeless with knowing anything about their own products. 

I was on chat with support enquiring about the eARC firmware update for this soundbar, he replies to me saying it doesn't have eARC?! 

the whole reason I purchased it was because of this update, I have the LG C9 which is eARC!

 

if they don't provide this firmware update to allow it, then this soundbar is going back for a refund.

All that for nothing. ha. it's like someone didn't like what i was saying and made it go away. I'm not sure why it doesn't work for me. I'm especially surprised that the Apple TV doesn't pass through the Dolby Vision. That's a big fail in my opinion.

Would it be possible that I am getting Dolby Vision to pass through the soundbar but my TV is not showing it in the source info for some reason? I don't have another HDR capable TV just laying around to check. lol.

when i run the source directly to the my TV it  clearly shows that Dolby Vision is being input, so when it's not there I'm probably not getting DV. I'm  just trying to come up with theories sfor what's going on. Anyone with a Panasonic OLED and the HW-Q90R have any thoughts on this?

Just a quick update about the issues with my Xbox one X not playing Dolby Atmos on netflix  but working on c9 netflix app and Apple TV netflix app. After speaking to Microsoft Xbox department it was a issue with my Dolby Access app preventing it working. I had to uninstall re download it and set it up again for headphones and home theater. Now it works fine but still with the major lip sync issues. Maybe that's why the Xbox has lip sync issues because of via the Dolby Access app, who knows !
